Teresa Kutala Firmino | SOLO EXHIBITION
13 October - 4 November 2023
Everard Read London is delighted to announce an exhibition of new acrylic and multi-media paintings by South African artist Teresa Kutala Firmino opening in October 2023.
This will be Firmino's second solo presentation with Everard Read London, following numerous solo exhibitions in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Franschhoek. Firmino's work was also recently presented alongside sculptures by Nandipha Mntambo at the international art fair ARCO Lisboa in 2022.
Firmino’s work negotiates trauma, both personal and collective, in everyday life. Her paintings are constructed scenes of the past and present, which are sometimes intertwined. The artist carefully collects images from magazines, newspapers, historical documents and social media, and places them in colourful, box-like stages. This creates surreally baroque scenes which take place in tightly confined interiors, where the characters have the opportunity to re-enact their stories or construct new ones.
This process allows Firmino to create alternative past, present and future narratives of Africa, thus rebuilding her own archive of African history.
